Description

This ​full ​day ​design-focused ​workshop ​examines ​best ​practices ​for ​combining ​modern, ​high ​efficiency ​wood-fired ​boilers ​with ​hydronic ​distribution ​systems. ​ ​It ​will ​cover ​the ​operating ​characteristics ​of ​wood-gasification ​boilers, ​pellet-fired ​boilers, ​and ​wood-chip ​boilers ​and ​the ​latest ​hydronic ​heating ​technology ​that ​can ​complement ​these ​high ​efficiency ​heat ​sources. ​The ​hydronic ​topics ​discussed ​will ​include ​low ​temperature ​heat ​emitters, ​high ​efficiency ​circulators, ​modern ​control ​techniques, ​and ​options ​for ​water-based ​thermal ​storage. ​ ​

The ​workshop ​culminates ​with ​several ​examples ​of ​how ​to ​combine ​these ​heat ​sources ​and ​distribution ​techniques ​into ​stable, ​efficient, ​and ​reliable ​systems. ​If ​you ​plan ​to ​be ​involved ​in ​designing ​or ​installing ​wood-based ​biomass ​heating ​systems, ​this ​workshop ​will ​present ​a ​wide ​range ​of ​design ​details ​that ​will ​help ​optimize ​the ​performance ​your ​systems ​deliver. ​

Instructor ​Bio:
John ​Siegenthaler, ​P.E., ​is ​a ​mechanical ​engineering ​graduate ​of ​Rensselaer ​Polytechnic ​Institute, ​a ​licensed ​professional ​engineer, ​and ​Professor ​Emeritus ​of ​Engineering ​Technology ​at ​Mohawk ​Valley ​Community ​College. ​"Siggy" ​has ​over ​35 ​years ​of ​experience ​in ​designing ​modern ​hydronic ​heating ​systems. ​He ​is ​a ​hall-of-fame ​member ​of ​the ​Radiant ​Panel ​Association, ​and ​a ​presenter ​at ​national ​and ​international ​conferences ​on ​hydronic ​and ​radiant ​heating. ​John ​is ​principal ​of ​Appropriate ​Designs ​- ​a ​consulting ​engineering ​firm ​in ​Holland ​Patent, ​NY. ​The ​3rd ​edition ​of ​his ​textbook ​- ​Modern ​Hydronic ​Heating ​- ​was ​released ​in ​2011. ​John ​currently ​writes ​about ​hydronics ​and ​heating ​system ​design ​using ​renewable ​energy ​heat ​sources ​for ​several ​trade ​publications ​including: ​Plumbing&Mechanical, ​PM ​Engineer, ​The ​NEWS, ​Supply ​House ​Times, ​and ​Heating, ​Plumbing, ​Air ​Conditioning ​(HPAC) ​In ​Canada. ​
